A New Website To Compare IVF Clinics
Not all IVF clinics offer the same chances of success when it comes to having a baby.
Up until now there has been no easy way to compare IVF clinics to help you decide where you go for treatment.
We are excited to announce the launch of a new government funded website that compares fertility clinics and estimates your chance of treatment success.
www.yourIVFsuccess.com.au compares over 90 clinics in Australia and New Zealand and we are proud to show that Genea Newcastle is one the top clinics across all categories.
Each year all accredited Australian IVF clinics must provide data to the Australian and New Zealand Assisted Reproduction Database (ANZARD). This data is used to calculate success rates in exactly the same way – so success rates are comparable and simple to use.
You can see our most recent results here .
The website also has an IVF success estimator where you can estimate your chance of having a baby using IVF.
Genea Newcastle Success Rates 2018
*Genea Newcastle’s 2018 treatment cycles presented in accordance with the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) Code of Practice. Based on clinical pregnancy’s and live births per embryo transfer for women using their own eggs.
1. Fresh embryo transfers include IVF and ICSI. Excludes PGD tested embryos and donor egg recipients.
2. Frozen embryo transfers include PGD and PGS tested embryos. Excludes donor egg recipients.
For further information on understanding success rates, please refer to the Fertility Society of Australia’s “Interpreting pregnancy rates: a consumer guide”. When comparing clinic success rates you should ask if their publicly available success rates are compliant with RTAC guidelines.
**Age significantly impacts fertility. Very few women over the age of 45 conceive using their own eggs, unless they freeze their eggs or embryos when they are younger, this is represented in the frozen embryo transfer live birth success rates.
Note: Many factors can contribute to the likelihood of achieving a pregnancy or a live birth such as the cause of infertility, lifestyle (such as weight and smoking) and age. It is important to note that unfortunately not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or having embryos to freeze.
In Australia, fertility clinics like Genea Newcastle are required to share data relating to the number of live births per embryo transfer (when the woman is using her own eggs).
This includes fresh embryo transfers from IVF, ICSI and some PGD tested embryos. It also includes frozen embryo transfers on PGD and PGS tested embryos.
It is important to note that age has a significant impact on fertility. Few women over the age of 45 conceive using their own eggs, unless these eggs have been frozen at a younger age. This is represented in the frozen embryo transfer live birth success rates.
Genea Newcastle would also like to note that many factors can contribute to the likelihood of achieving a pregnancy or a live birth. These include the cause of infertility and an individual’s lifestyle as well as their age.
While we are always working towards higher success rates, unfortunately, not every treatment cycle will result in an egg collection, embryo transfer or an outcome where there are embryos available to freeze.
